You will be warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Help is on its way! Your First visit will include a greeting from our Chiropractic Assistant (C.A), who will give you some paperwork to fill out, don’t worry it is only 1 page long!
The Chiropractor will meet you and take you into the room to discuss your problem. Careful questioning to gleam the important information about what is wrong and how it is affecting you.
This is followed up with physical testing (orthopedic tests), neurological tests and palpation tests (touching the spine or area that is affected).
Neurological patients will have a complex and detailed Neurological examination, but don’t worry it is non invasive and non painful. It is designed to bring out your neurological problem so that a rehabilitation program can be designed for you.
If deemed necessary an x-ray or MRI may be requested.
If you have a new acute injury, there will be some treatment on the first day.
If you are a chronic patient (had the problem building for a while) you will be given some pretreatment advise (icing, stretching, exercises) and your next visit will be the first treatment/adjustment day.
Allow for 30 minutes for your first visit.
